Solamet® Manufacturing Capacity Doubles, Significant Increase in Demand Expected

Published on 2009-03-05. Author : SpecialChem

DuPont Microcircuit Materials (MCM), part of DuPont Electronic Technologies, recently doubled production capacity for DuPont™Solamet® thick film metallization pastes and made key quality improvements at its European Electronic Materials Manufacturing Facility in Bristol, U.K. DuPont MCM expects a significant increase in demand for Solamet® that should continue over the next several years, driven by the anticipated long-term growth in the photovoltaic (PV) solar energy industry.

"DuPont MCM undertook this expansion project to support the fast-growing photovoltaic market in Europe and the increasing portfolio of Solamet® products jointly developed by MCM research facilities worldwide, including our newest Solamet® PV159 front side conductor," said Craig Oliver, European business manager, MCM. "We expect the growth trend to continue in PV, enabled by Solamet® and other materials from DuPont Photovoltaic Solutions."

In addition to the increased production capacity for Solamet® and other MCM thick film materials, which are used in a wide variety of electronic applications and destined primarily for customers in Europe, the expansion project also enhanced clean-room facilities to meet the continually improving quality requirements of MCM customers.
